Year 6

Year 6 is a special year for students as they bring to an end their Primary School journey and prepare to embark upon a new adventure.

Expectations for Year 6

  • An enjoyable year with new opportunities and experiences,
  • Progress for all children and the highest standards achieved for every child,
  • Building independent skills ready for secondary school,
  • Embedding a high level of respect,
  • Challenging the children to discover their unique gift - Who has God called me to be?

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please feel free to see me at the end of the day. If I am not available or this is not convenient for yourself, then please make an appointment with me via the school office.

I look forward to continuing to work with you this year to ensure that your child reaches their full potential whilst in my care.
